Does your family love racing? They can experience all the fun and thrills of driving competitions at Broadway Grand Prix.

New at Broadway at the Beach for 2014, Broadway Grand Prix is the breakout destination for families who like to rev up their engines and take on a challenge. Seven go-kart tracks offer seven different types of challenges — from long, leisurely treks on the Family Track, to exciting twists and turns on the Fast Track, to high banking and sharp turns on the Oval Track.

Are you a speedster who likes to put the pedal to the metal? A novice who prefers to ride with a companion in a double-seated go kart? A junior who's ready to take the wheel? Choose the track that's right for you.There's even a Kids Zone Kiddie Speedway for the littlest racers in the family.

But not all the fun at the Broadway Grand Prix is on a track. The park has batting cages, 2 mini-golf courses, and even a rock climbing wall. There's also an arcade, thrilling amusement rides like the SkyCoaster, and a racing-themed carousel.

To get your motor running this summer, head on over to Broadway Grand Prix.

This is a great place to come to enjoy pristine beaches, awesome shopping, and great entertainment and dining.

After a day at the beach, all those other things can be found in one location — Broadway at the Beach. At specialty shops surrounding the 23-acre Lake Broadway, you'll find everything from homemade fudge to unique wines, clothes and jewelry. More than 20 restaurants serve up everything from juicy burgers to marvelous seafood, BBQ and sushi.

If you like live performances, there's always something playing at The Palace and Legends In Concert. Up for a movie? Check out the Carmike Cinema Broadway 17 and its Big 3D theater.

Burger Time: The Superstar of Comfort Foods Rules In May

Posted in Dining

May is National Hamburger Month, a great time to celebrate and enjoy the juicy sandwich that we love. With the possible exception of the hot dog, no other food defines American summers.

If you've ever wondered just who invented this awesome comfort food, you're not alone. Perhaps we'll never know for sure. The U.S. Library of Congress says Louis Lassen invented the hamburger in New Haven, Conn., in 1900. But other states have laid claim to the invention including Wisconsin, Oklahoma, California, Ohio, New York and (of course) Texas.

But one thing's for sure. If you're looking for a great burger, you don't have to go any farther than Myrtle Beach. Broadway at the Beach is home to Johnny Rockets and "The Original Hamburger." That's the one-third pound burger that started it all for the restaurant in 1986. Rockets even has a cheeseburger that diners rate a 12 on a scale of 1 to 10!

If you like a little entertainment with your food, Rockets is the burger joint for you. The waitstaff of this 1950s-style diner will break into a song and dance routine when the music moves them.

Join in the fun. It's burger time!
